Aikido for Kids (Winter)

Young students learn the essentials behind this traditional Japanese martial art.


What age can my child start from?
Children from 5 years old are welcome to join. Younger students close to their 5th birthday wishing to try, a trial and assessment class can be arranged in a class with space available.

What will my child learn in these classes?
From the start, your child will learn proper dojo etiquette and manners that are vital to learning any martial art. Starting from basic yet specific body movements and moving into working with partners, students develop self-control, agility, improved balance and flexibility, and how to work with others respectfully. Training in Aikido helps students reach their full potential not just during class but in their daily lives as well.

What are the benefits of these classes?
Pacific Aikido’s children’s classes provide the opportunity to introduce children to a Japanese martial art with a balance of discipline and fun, both of which are equally important. The structured approach to physical development also helps with mental development. Through fun and focused body movements, specific pieces of Aikido techniques, students build self-awareness and confidence.

The Chief Instructor is Paul Neuman, a 5th-degree black belt from Vancouver and father of three. Paul has assembled a great team of highly skilled instructors with years of experience. Pacific Aikido has been teaching Aikido to children and adults since 1991 and at TAC since 1999.
